What materials are our jewelry made of?
I use only the best quality Sterling Silver components (.925, .999), 14Kt. Gold Filled, European Authentic Crystal, Precious and Semiprecious gemstones to create all jewelry.
Solid .925 Sterling Silver
Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, the copper is added to give the silver strength, as silver by itself is too maleable and does not hold up well to wear..
We used in some of our designs but it is specific in the descriptions.
Antique Silver is lead free pewter dipped in Sterling Silver.We used in some of our designs but it is specific in the descriptions.
Gold Vermeil is Sterling Silver dipped in 14K Gold producing a piece that looks and feels like pure gold.
14K Gold Filled
Gold-filled items arecomposed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% of the item's total weight, mechanically bonded to a base metal (brass). The related terms "rolled gold plate" and "gold overlay" may be used if the layer of gold constitutes less than 5% of the item's weight. Gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last 1 to 5 years but will eventually wear through.
Svvarovsl< i Crystals
We used the name European Authentic Crystal or Premium Prestige Crystal to name the Finest Crystal Brand. We had an agreement with the brand and we can’t used the brand name.
We use to create our jewelry creamy white potato-shaped pearls.Freshwater pearls are a natural material some variations in size and appearance may occur.
Gemstone and Semi-precious Gemstones
A gem or gemstone is known as a precious or semi-precious stone that is a part of some attractive mineral and used after cutting and polishing to make jewelry and other ornamentation.
All beaded necklace and bracelet designs are in strong professional quality (49 strand), flexible, and kink resistant stainless steel cable, to make sure your bracelet will not break easily. This beading wire is flexible and resists kinking unless severely bent.
Hand Stamped Jewelry
Hand stamping is a metalwork technique called "chasing". Hand stamping is really done by hand hammer and steel die.
The chasing die (or stamping die) have designs, textures, and letters formed on the end to be used alone or used together in pleasing combinations -- like names and words. Each letter is individually stamped into the metal with a steel die, a hammer, and my own hand/eye coordination.
There will always be variation in the alignment of characters and a "smudge" on the back of the piece where the metal was displaced from the front. All this is part of the unique charm of hand stamp jewelry.
Any variation in the alignment or spacing of the letters should be then enhancement of the unique quality of your piece and not a defect or flaw.
